    Steinbeck’s “The Gra[pes Of Wrath”. I read it as a Junior in High school, and found that it was the story of many of my friends’ elders here in Northern California.

    For me it was James Mitchners “The Source”. That one novel openned the world for me with regard to history, anthro, lit, finance, phil, etc. It made me an avid reader, a more thoughtful/thinking person. It prompted me to think outside of my little world(box). What Mitchner did for me equates to what Guttenburg did for all of humanity; life hasn’t been the same since.
